Well so far so good. Well after a fiasco last night. After trimming the spare ribs, I decided to Smoke the trimmed pieces to use in my smokey bake beans today. About a hour into the smoke my MES30 quit, not really a big deal, it got the first hour of smoke. I brought them in and finished in the stove. The New Backwoods is awesome with temp control. Something Im not used to with my MES.. A new day today. Had a rub on the ribs overnight and the chicken in a brine for about 6 hours. Made a pan full of ABT's filled with cream cheese, cheddercheese and some of the chopped up rib trimmings.. Made some of those Tomato Candies to go in later too!!! And of course the Smokey baked beans.... QViews to follow!!! Sorry forgot PreSmoke Chicken pics... Buster My Beer Drinking Boxer! He Loves Smokin'
